Yup, works well in Word. Sorry I hadn't seen this before posting the same info.

I think this works in all versions of Word, but I'm not sure. Just press
SHIFT F5 when you first open the document, and Word will take you to the
last edit.

As I recall, the training material said something about it early on, and I
thought, "That's for me." I have never understood why Word can't do what
WordPerfect and DisplayWrite could do decades ago, and what Excel can also
do--bring you in where you left off without fuss and bother!

I had no idea placemarkers would work in Word. This is awesome!

I use them in Word documents, rather than the equivalent Insert
function in Word. Defining temporary, they stay after you close the
document, but are superseded by the next one, which makes them perfect
for my purpose.

According to Surf's Up,Control-windows-k creates a temporary placemarker.

hello;
not sure of which version of jaws your using, but, the keystroke for
creating place markers, isn't ctrl+windows+k, I'm using jaws 16, the
keystroke is ctrl+shift+k, now tab to add, also, alt+windows+k will
announce the various place markers.

With so much good Internet advice flying around on this list lately,
I thought I would raise a question that has been bugging me.

I use PlaceMarkers frequently, especially with Web applications that
I use all the time, including a document management Web App that I
access (keep loaded all the time) daily.

I'm wondering if there is a strategy to ensure that PlaceMarkers
always work. Frankly, the PlaceMarkers I have set tend to remain,
but the k key, which is supposed serially to jump from placeMarker to
PlaceMarker often skips PlaceMarkers that I know are there.
Sometimes, after JAWS has skipped over a PlaceMarker I can hit shift
K to go backwards, and sometimes JAWS will find the shy PlaceMarker.
Sometimes it does not.

Years ago, I had the same problem with WindowEyes, and have been
assuming that PlaceMarkers are just flakey and not terribly reliable
because of the peculiarities of the Net.

No one has told me that, and it occurred to me that I perhaps am
doing something wrong.

Here is what I do:

1. Press Control plus windows plus K

2. Choose Add PlaceMarker

3. accept the default name, link to text, use the default text (if I
know it is going to be constant), and choose domain only if I know
the element will always be on screen within the application.

Linking to text seems like it ought to increase the reliability of
the PlaceMarker, but I do not think that is true. Is it possible
that the opposite is true?

I think I'm making the right choice in indicating when it should be
linked to the domain instead of the specific page, but perhaps my
thinking is backwards.

If everyone else has the same reliability issues, then I'll continue
with my thought that PlaceMarkers are just flakey.
